Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars


Book 2 in the Mad Dog series.

Four geological scientists go missing in the Swiss Alp’s when they apparently wander into Arimaspi territory. It is up to the Mad Dogs to retrieve them because the whole situation stinks of the Organization.

However, it’s not Organization Operatives the Mad Dogs encounter but instead the Watcher who is obsessed with the Unit, especially its newest member.

Author Note: This book contains adult m/m sexual situations and is intended for readers of legal age in the country in which they reside.

Caroline’s View:

Back with the Mad Dogs team and Brian is now bonded with his true mate Markus which has brought up issues for the team as Markus now seems able to take on a third form. He has yet to bond with rest of his teammates but as each bond is put in place Brian and the team feel stronger. Although much happier with the fact that his sexuality has done a complete 180 his ass is very much still off limits!

Pulled from his initiation from the team early to take on their first mission as a team of six sees them being dropped off on a mission to rescue four kidnapped scientists. He has to rely on the memory banks of the other Mad Dogs for a lot of information; it’s almost like an online computer system in his head of all past missions and relevant information. One of the first things he discovers is just how old some of his team members really are, for every answer he gets he seems to have more questions.

We are introduced to many more paranormal life forms and not all of them are fighting for the good. The most intriguing one on this mission is Duke. Duke is what is known a watcher and he does exactly what his name implies. Watchers are impartial to all the fighting between paranormals but Duke seems to have a slight obsession with this Mad Dog team that he has constantly watched over the years. When he slips away with its newest member for a private chat Markus is furious but unable to stop him. I think Brenda has a lot more story to give us with Duke before we find out why he is so pulled towards Brian.

This was a real page turner and a book that I couldn’t put down until the end. The world building is quite unique where shifters are concerned and there is a lot of scope for how it can move forward. You definitely need to read book 1 before starting this one.
